Jerusalem Farm & Wade Wood Local Nature Reserve
Jerusalem Farm and Wade Wood is a 13-hectare nature reserve with many woodland pathways and perfect spots for picnics and paddling. The kids will have great fun splashing about in the stream and there is plenty of space to play. There are also picnic tables and spots in the shade.

The Calderdale Way passes close by the reserve.

Wade Wood and the landscape around it is home to many woodland birds such as nuthatches, Tree Creepers, Goldfinch, Robins and Woodpeckers. If you're lucky (and very quiet) you may also catch a sight of deer!

The site has a wide variety of fungi during the autumn months. However is known for midges on summer evenings, so don't forget the midge repellent when you come to visit!

Please note: Access to the woods from the car park is by a steep grass track. There is a zig-zag path from the car park to the grass, which is stroller accessible for the kids.

The car park is only small and also serves the camp site and self-catering accommodation at Jerusalem Farm, so please arrive early if you're coming to visit. The car park closes at dusk and is locked for the night.
